FOURTEEN MINUTES

James Croall

The Last Voyage of the Empress of Ireland

The Empress of Ireland , a 14, 000 ton Canadian Pacific Ocean Liner , sailed from Quebec to her doom on the 28th May , 1914 .

In the St Lawrence River , in thick fog ,she collided with the Norwegian collier ..Storstad -- and sank in only fourteen minutes

Over a thousand people were drowned , making it the worst Maritime disaster for passengers in history ; less than five hundred were saved ..

Yet somehow the tragic story of the Empress of Ireland ---which rivals in numbers the sinking of the Titanic and the Lusitania -- has been almost forgotten ..

Now James Croall has fulfilled a life time interest by vividly bringing back to life the story of her last voyage ....He recreates all the drama and terror , heroism and panic of the sinking through the personal accounts of the survivors .

He has also solved at last the baffling mystery of how the collision occurred

FOURTEEN MINUTES ...is not only an invaluable contribution to Maritime history , but also a book as powerful and moving as Walter Lord's classic account of the Titanic , A Night to Remember

This Hardback was published by ...MICHAEL JOSEPH ..1978 ...A First Edition ..and is complete with Dust jacket which has not been price clipped ..£5.95 ..but is wavy to the edges

It is nice and tidy inside
